Happy World Book Day!

It was lovely dropping Isobel off at school this morning and seeing the children in their World Book Day costumes. Last year Elsa was the popular choice but this year the school playground was full of kids dressed up as Wally (from Where's Wally). My favourite costume was an Oompa Loompa with full-on orange face paint and green wig.

Isobel's class topic at the moment is The Owl and The Pussycat, which she wanted as a theme for her World Book Day costume. Luckily we already had cat ears and a tail (plus some liquid eyeliner for a nose and whiskers) but we didn't have an owl. So out came the craft and sewing boxes and I made one!

He (or she - Isobel hasn't decided its gender yet) is a bit wonky but Isobel loves him and he's accompanied her to school today.

We don't have a pea-green boat either but we'll have to use our imagination for that one. My craft supplies won't stretch that far...

Are you (or your children) celebrating World Book Day?
